The all-new Element strap sets a new standard in comfort, durability and ergonomic support. Through extensive research into alignment and the natural movement of the rider’s ankles, knees and upper body during riding and impact landings, the Dual Molded Direct Impact foot bed was developed. The two part dual density molded design features an ultra-comfortable lower density upper layer with extra cushioning on your lateral (outer) side of your foot, with a denser more supportive impact resistant layer on the medial (inner) side of the foot. Ergonomically designed to support, stabilize and cushion the feet during high impact landings. This unique design increases the ergonomic support to the medial (inner) side of your foot, which in turn guides your knees outwards during high impact landings. This technology, common in running and athletic shoes, offers the best support and stability while minimizing the chances of fatigue and injury. The variable angle adjustment strap works in conjunction with the directional grooving to keep your foot firmly in place. This combined with the adjustable rubber molded tongue enables the rider to fine-tune the Element to fit their specific foot shape and create the ultimate connection to the board. Put simply: the Element makes your board feel better than ever before.
